A few years back I was hospitalized for something that looked at first like some kind of hepatitis. I never tested positive for anything. I was there for a week. The experience was horrible. Every specialist came in and got his "ticket punched." No one was in charge. My doctor, who hospitalized me, was on vacation and only showed at the end, when there was no diagnosis and the hospital allowed me to self-medicate with over-the counter pain meds. Their strong meds were hit-and-miss mainly because of timing. The first migraine had already "taken root" by the time I saw the first doctor and was allowed the first medicine. That was because I was forbidden even asprin while waiting. I was asked to leave my urine in vials and did so all week till my bathroom was full of uncollected vials and there was no more room. Really ugly. The closet, according to my visitors, smelled of old urine (not mine). I was on IV the whole time and added a good 25 lbs of water - bloat - while there. O n release I weighed more than normal (!) and was very, very ugly and bloated. When, thankfully, I lost the water weight, I weighed 140, 20 lbs less than normal. I was very relieved that my stretched skin recovered without sagging wrinkles. Naturally I had lost fat and muscle. The water weight was insult added to injury. I don't know what it was that I had and it went away on its own when they "left me alone" and allowed me to self-medicate. By the time I got out I was having trouble breathing while in bed if I was sitting up (to get relief for my head). One of my sisters who had worked in hospitals got me out of bed and helped me walk in the halls and that started my recovery. The bathroom full of uncollected urine vials and the smelly closet are not aberrations but in my judgment are just the housekeeping equivalent of the medical care I received. I no longer use the same doctor and hope never to see the inside of a Phoebe hospital room again. My doctor, part of the Phoebe system, put inaccurate and totally baseless degrading remarks in my record when he hospitalized me, and that prejudiced my handling and treatment. He was clearly afraid my condition might be seen as reflecting on his care - he had me on lipitor even though my cholesterol was normal - he wanted it better - and here was something that looked like a liver issue - so he tried to shift blame to me by lying about noncompliance, missing appointments (a colon scope I had at Phoebe on his recommendation that he never reviewed), and worse. Much worse. All these remarks were entered the day of intake without comment to me and with no prior indications of anything like it in his record on me, or anywhere else, for that matter. His version of defensive medicine. A Phoebe system doctor. I give the hospital a 1 out of 10 on this experience.
